How to find the connected Wi-Fi password on Android

Let’s find the Wi-Fi password for your connected Wi-Fi in Android

I have a OnePlus 8T Android device myself. The screenshots do not always correspond completely with other makes and models.
So look carefully at the steps to be able to follow these on your own device.

I have hidden all sensitive information related to my Wi-Fi connection under red lines.
This is where the information will be for you when you complete the steps.

Android has the option to share the Wi-Fi password via a QR code.
We are going to use this option to show your Wi-Fi password.

  • Go to your Wi-Fi settings by either going to Settings > Wi-Fi,
    or hold the Wi-Fi symbol.
  • Click on the gearwheel to open the concerning Wi-Fi connection settings.

Here you see the QR code that you can share with friends so that they can connect to the Wi-Fi.

On most Android devices you will see the password below the QR code.
It’s under the red line for me.
